These four spas take their treatments to the next level.
Why not treat yourself to a self-care day at Spa de La Mer?
1. Aire Ancient Baths
A day at Aire consists of massages and rituals intertwined with water experiences meant to transport you back to Roman, Ottoman and Greek bathing ceremonies. Surrounded by exposed brick and soft candle lighting, Aire acts as a water oasis, separating the fast-paced city from its enchanting atmosphere. With packages available for solo experiences, couples and groups, treatments focus on the water ritual, a circuit through baths at varying temperatures. From a deep red soak made of grapes to a salt bath, the Flotarium, guests can choose from an array of water immersion experiences to accompany massages and other body treatments. 88 Franklin St., beaire.com
Centered around the latest technology, Daphne curates a unique spa experience with over 20 facials to choose from. The studio in downtown Manhattan offers European-derived facials and body treatments ranging from 20 minutes to two and a half hours, and prides itself on sugaring, an Egyptian method of hair removal. The Dream Facial is the most standout treatment at Daphne: 150 minutes of cleansing, exfoliating, LED light therapy, microcurrent toning and cryotherapy meant to treat the entire body. The facial finishes with an award-winning hyaluronic acid anti-aging treatment. Daphne spares no expense when it comes to skincare. 375 Broome St., daphne.studio
